My interest in Orson Welles, versus awful narration by Mark Cousins
Gave up on this after 12 minutes (couldn't even make it to a quarter of an hour).
It's almost as if, for some perverse reason, Mark Cousins tried to make his narration as irritating as possible. Is it meant to be a test: if you're truly interested in Welles, then you ought to be prepared to sit through this tripe?
To adopt Mark Cousins' style of narration: "You've messed this up, Mark. You need to go back to the drawing board. And not one once owned by Orson Welles. Ain't that the truth, Mark."
